Dave felled his first tree at just 19 years of age. He was working on a farm at the time that had 7 acres of wood that the farmer wanted to turn back into a field. With an entrepreneurial mind already developing, Dave spotted an opportunity. He asked the farmer if he could fell the trees to sell as firewood over the winter. Many of the trees were hanging over the roadside and heavy duty telephone wires, so tree surgery techniques began to emerge. After completing the work, a neighbour asked if Dave would be willing to fell 7 big oak trees; "Yes", Dave replied, "But looking after them would be better...". It was then that DL Corran Tree Surgeons was born. Not only is Dave the owner of the business, but also father to the team. Dave has valuable experience in all aspects of tree work, and is a fountain of knowledge when it comes to his trade. He has passed this knowledge down to each of his sons and the rest of the team, helping to create a strong team of tree surgeons. In addition to this knowledge and experience, Dave has a huge wealth of training and qualifications to add to his repertoire.
Matt has been working for the family business since 1995 and is a key member in our team. Matt can offer expert advice on all aspects of tree work, thanks to his wide range of qualifications, including: Level 2 RFS Certificate in Arboriculture, Level 4 Diploma in Arboriculture, qualifications in tree climbing, ariel rescue, advanced rigging and lowering. Matt is a member of the arboricultural association at a technician level and is a qualified Professional Tree Inspector. Matt takes a leading role on site when Dave is not available.
